Calvert’s comprehensive curriculum materials include everything you need for a full year of teaching.
Laying the Foundations of Grammar, Composition, Math and Science
Our 2nd Grade homeschool curriculum fully immerses your child into the world of independent reading. Using our delightful phonics storybooks and reading anthologies, your child will develop strong reading comprehension skills to last a lifetime. Simultaneously, spelling practice, word and sentence dictation, and the rules of punctuation will help prepare your child to express his or her ideas in original composition pieces.
Two different math options are available with our 2nd Grade curriculum: 1) Calvert Math, a traditional math program where students perform complex addition and subtraction, manipulate and measure geometric figures, develop skills with money and measurement, represent data, and work with numbers up to 1000 or 2) Math in Focus, a new, modernized math approach where students perform complex addition and subtraction, are introduced to multiplication and division, work with numbers up to 1000, manipulate and measure geometric figures, and develop skills with money and measurement.
In addition, you and your child will explore the world of Science as you perform hands-on activities and investigate units on heat, light, rock properties, the human heart, and more. Travel through time and around the world with our Social Studies topics as you learn about old-world figures, geography, and maps. As with all Calvert programs, our 2nd Grade curriculum integrates technology lessons into daily activities and assignments.
The Tools You Need Plus Unlimited Support
Our comprehensive 2nd Grade homeschool program includes everything you need to successfully educate your child at home: print textbooks, workbooks, reading books, maps, science and math kits, activity pages, tests, and more! Our print and online Lesson Manuals include complete daily lesson plans and step-by-step instructions.
All Calvert programs also include access to the Calvert Teaching Navigator, our innovative online resource that makes homeschooling with Calvert easier and more flexible than ever before. Plus, every enrollment includes free, unlimited Teacher Support from our highly trained and certified Education Counselors.
Lessons, activities, and online interactive learning tools are integrated with the curriculum, particularly Reading and Science.
I used to spend endless hours planning and organizing our homeschool curriculum. With Calvert’s Lesson Manuals, I just look over the lesson the night before and we’re ready to go the next day! Calvert has done all the prep work for me and that gives me more time to focus on my kids.— Amanda B. Calvert Mom
